The lawyers of the Chairman of the State Fiscal Service of Ukraine Roman Nasirov are intentionally delaying the hearing at the Solomianskyi District Court of Kyiv, which is to impose pre-trial restriction, in order to expire 72 hours allotted by the law for this procedure.

The Head of the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor Office (SAPO) Nazar Kholodnytskyi said, Censor.NET reports.

"Everyone appeals to health condition, to the disqualification of the judge. They've just disqualified a judge, then they'll start disqualification of the prosecutor, then they'll disqualify the chairs the prosecutors sit on. Everything is done to take time so that 72 hours pass," he said.
